york city hospital. the staff at nyu langone medical center was forced to evacuate hundreds of patients overnight including infants from the neo natal intensive care unit after backup power failed. they are still evacuating patients as we speak. we'll get to more on that in a moment, but first, let's go straight to meteorologist bill karins for the very latest. bill? >> good morning to you guys. and it's just starting to settle in. and once these pictures come in, it's just going to be incredible. the kind of damage that sandy created. over my shoulder here, you're looking at one of the strongest storms to go through the mid-atlantic region and caused the most destruction of our lifetime. this has never happened for a storm like this in the jersey shore of this intensity. lowest pressure readings ever in philadelphia and atlantic city, new jersey, and the storm surge, the highest ever measured in areas like new york city. that is so rare. and the effects we're just beginning to realize. and wait until we find out how long it's going to take for the new york subway to get running again.
in new york city had reached 60 miles per hour already and were expected to climb throughout the night and into tomorrow. this is going to last. already it's caused massive damage. in atlantic city, part of the famous boardwalk has washed away. and a large part of the city was under water late today. along the shore in maryland and delaware, communities are dealing with wide scale flooding, with parts of ocean city, maryland, and rehoboth beach, delaware, already underwater. in manhattan police closed off streets around a building where a crane collapsed and remains dangling there, and trains, subways and other public transportation systems have been suspended in cities from boston down to washington, d.c. nearly 14,000 flights have been grounded. >>> we begin our coverage with nbc in rehoboth beach. thank you for joining us. give us an update on what's happening where you're standing. i think you're in the water right there. >> reporter: yeah. this is actually the atlantic ocean, and, chris, you know this area probably very well. this is a popular destination for a lot of d.c. folks.
there. all the while, resenting the african-american turnout machine. in the city of cleveland, ohio, african-american voters are 26 times more likely than white voters to use early in-person voting as their preferred way of voting. for this election in particular, even though it's been fine for every election in the past seven years, for this election in particular, early in person voting must be stopped. to the point of taking it to the supreme court of the united states with 28 days left before the election and meanwhile leaving the whole state's voting rules hanging. as ohio hits its voter registration deadline today and so many other states as well, what we know about how the parties have done on voter registration in the swing states opens a real interesting window into how the two parties are contesting the important states. this is a matter not just of national but of international importance. you can tell because the guardian newspaper from the uk has published a deep look into swing state voter registration numbers this past weaning. you can see their headline here. democra
endorsements today from the denver post, the tampa bay times. the salt city tribune. yes, the salt city tribune, an utah paper endorsing obama. that's good for him. he seems to have stopped the bleeding according to a lot of polls, however, he has got to go into the next debate, the next set of questions and smile. we need a president who sat there and smile, we need the president reassure us. when we see him smile everybody is happy. he has a number of things he needs to talk about. the supreme court, climate change, iraq and the fiscal cliff. he has not talked at all about the fiscal cliff. it is coming. whoever is elected will be totally responsible for that. he went on "the daily though." this is what he said with jon stewart. >> obama: the stakes could not be bigger, war peace, supreme court, women's right to choose, whether we're creating jobs in this country or whether they're getting shipped overseas, whether our kids are getting the best education they can. all of that stuff is at stake. there is no excuse not to vote. >> of course there is no excuse not to vote. but you see the presid
ago was just starting to rise. since then in that 24 hours the city has been crippled. we're talking about $20 billion in infrastructure damage, $10 billion to $30 billion in lost business reeceipts. if those numbers are right by some estimates, that would be the worst disaster in u.s. history. we're also looking at a subway system, the best in the world some say, that currently is not working, not functional, and won't be for several days. it could be more than that. electricity south of 39th street gone for the most part. overnight and now today in some parts of where i'm standing right now, battery park on the southern tip of manhattan, they don't even have cell service, they don't have broadband service here and there. they've just taken down a tree that was felled not too long ago. that took about 45 minutes. up to my right there's a residential tower, just to give you a sense of how the financial center of the united states is not necessarily at its best, crippled at the moment, that tower normally would be lit up with lights. they're not right now. martin, it is difficult goin

. >> what is your estimate of the number of people who descend upon each debate city for these? from the campaigns, the media, the commission, the total? >> a very good question. probably approximates what happens at the national convention. we have about 3700 registered media here. that is the largest contention. we have several hundred people in the audience, and in the campaign staff, their entourage. i would say in total is probably close to that. also, people who come here to be a part of the atmosphere, to be a part of some of the activities going around, occurring around town in connection with the debate. probably approximately 10,000 people. in terms of a very large convention that a city would host, it is not that big, but the extraordinary difference, the entire international press corps and all the press corps of united states is here and will be broadcasting live tonight from denver. >> 92 students get to sit in the hall. who else is in there? how many? >> tickets are divided between the two campaigns. i cannot remember the exact number in the audience here. it is at lea
for catholic charities here in new york city, has ended up becoming a really important thing in american presidential politics. honestly, the biggest reason it is really important is because of its timing. there are other dinners like this. the gridiron dinner in washington or the alfalfa dinner or the correspondence dinner. there are other dinners that are fancy politics proms, essentially. where you get a sitting president or very high-level politician showing up in tuxedos and gowns and telling jokes and sharing stages with people they otherwise would not be sharing stages with. that happens. right? there are those events in washington and elsewhere around the country. but this one that you are looking at right here is different. because this one happens now. a couple of weeks before the election. and it's always timed like that. every time. and traditionally, both presidential candidates go to these things. i mean, there are some years where the dinner conflicts directly with the debate or rarely one of the candidates will decide to blow this dinner off. walter mondale did that 1984.
cain. and as i drove in today it was good to see the city seems to be doing very, very well. appreciate, mayor, your introduction today, and i know john mccain was worried. he was afraid when he left flight school that the liquid hospitality business would totally collapse, but apparently -- they used to do pretty well. you know, all across america, people are paying a great deal of attention to this race. they recognize this is a critical time for the country. we face big challenges. we have big opportunities. and i know this is a big election. so the crowds are large, and people are paying very close attention. four years ago, then candidate barack obama, spoke about big things. but now he is reduced to talking about small things. he is shrinking from the magnitude of the times. and so he is speaking about characters on sesame street, and silly word games, and attacks on me. look, attacking me is not an agenda for the future and that's why we're replacing him. [cheering] >> you know, his presidency also shrunk from the promises he made as a candidate. he promised his would be a post-partisan
and preemptive closings of schools, businesses and rail lines from washington to new york city. >>> the very serious storm is causing major changes for presidential campaign plans. with just eight days to go, what does it mean for early voting? governor romney's recent momentum and president obama's chance to look presidential in this final week. >>> one state already feeling the direct effect of the storm is right here just outside of us in virginia today. we're breaking down the recent success for democrats in the old dominion and what are the president's chances to do it again? good morning from a very rainy washington. it's monday, october 29th, 2012. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to my first reads of the morning. and it's this. a massive category 1 storm, but it's a large one. and it's bearing down on the east coast just eight days before the election. nearly 60 million people are in hurricane sandy's path one way or the other. and it stretches more than 800 miles from north carolina to maine. and as sandy barrels towards the east coast, it is already brin
300 miles east of the carolinas. more than 500 miles to the southeast of new york city. so this storm is still impacting the east coast. and it's so far away. so imagine what's going to happen as it moves closer to shore. we have coastal flood warnings from new england down into the eastern shores of virginia. that's because we are looking at a storm surge up to around four to seven feet. if not higher. that's the type of storm we're dealing with as it moves onshore. it's pushing all that water onshore. and your normal high tide sirk cycle in the mid-atlantic region, that's going to happen at the peak of the storm. so the high tide will be about four to seven feet higher than normal. we also have high wind warnings posted across the northeast. stretching back into eastern ohio, wind with the storm, tropical storm-force winds extend more than 500 miles out from the center of this storm. look at how massive it is. it is affecting the entire eastern seaboard pretty much all at the same time. right now the strongest winds are down near salisbury, maryland and down into virginia beach, nor
chip reid who is in ocean city, maryland. chip, is it there yet? >> reporter: well, not quite the full force of it yet, bob, but we are certainly feeling stronger winds, and the surf is certainly riled up. the mayor here wants to make sure people don't get complacent, basis year ago, hurricane irene, they had all these dire warnings, and it really didn't do much to this city. he wants to make sure they understand that this time there really could be some severe flooding, a storm surge of 4-eight of 8 feet which would mean where i'm standing will certainly be underwater. he's warning people in the low-lying parts of the island to prepare to evacuate. he said power could be out for days. they need a disaster supply kit. it's very important that people don't get complacent based on what happened a year ago because this one could be much worse. bob. >> schieffer: all right, thank you, my friend. chip reid in maryland. let's go now to cbs news correspondent elaine quijano. she is at point pleasant beach, new jersey this morning. elaine, what's the latest there? >> reporter: good morning to
at 11:00. so city officials are taking their time in deciding what the next move is going to be. >> we still have some time at this point, i think, to wait and see. but by noon tomorrow, decisions have to be made. >> reporter: why does this not strike any fear in you? >> it's a big wind bag. >> reporter: now, meanwhile, city officials are also asking residents if they are -- if they've got doubts, if they've got questions, to keep the chamber of commerce handy on their phones. they can call them anytime tomorrow. they'll be making some decisions as the days progress. meanwhile, other locals are telling us they're not taking any chances. they've gone to the store to stock up on water and candles, and many have told us that the water is already sold out in a lot of these places. we'll update you again at 6:00 and 11:00 tonight. >> and stay up to date with us on sandy all night and all weekend. you can also get updates 24/7 on nbcwashington.com and search sandy, and follow us on twitter or facebook. also sign up for breaking news alerts at nbc washington.com back slash newsletters. >>> pr
was totally taken away with the new york city hospital, that has babies in various states -- premature or babies that are sick on respirators. the generator went down and backup generator went down. they had to be moved down. the number of ambulances of people showed up to move the children is remarkable. they got them to other hospitals. as far as i know, none of them suffered from it. but remarkable response. >> eric: other states actually sending first responders from pennsylvania, from upstate new york as well. couple other states sending them to the area for help. >> dana: you saw from the woman with chris christie earlier, shock and grief. there are seven stages of it. they are going to get help. then that can turn angry later on. what you see from the governors like governor mitch daniels of indiana, sent 22 of their ambulances to the area so they can get some help. governors usually cooperate very well amongst one another. in coordination effort that are really good. one thing i want to point out, this might be the first natural disaster in america that really played itself out
with breaking news out of the middle east where a car bomb has rocked the city of beirut. at least five people have been injured. three of them seriously in the attack. nick paton walsh describing the scene as one of chaos. we will continue to monitor the story and bring any new developments. >>> on to politics but not the kind you are probably used to. take a deep breath and laugh. the presidential candidates and their wives skipped the campaign trail and hit the circuit, a new way perhaps to reach out to undecided voters. ann romney went to "the view." michelle obama went to kelly ripa. and the alford e. smith memorial dinner, a roast featuring presidential candidates. >> earlier today i went shopping at stores in mid town. i understand governor romney went shopping for some stores in mid town. >> we are down to the final months of the president's term. as president obama surveys the banquet room with everyone in white tie and finery you have to wonder what he's thinking. so little time. so much to redistribute. >> tonight is not about the disagreements governor romney and i may have. it's w
way to prevent violent crime in the cities is bring opportunity. >> that is all they are releasing. too many people are making about the fact that paul ryan was about to stop to the interview. we have verb batum of what happened next. >> gretchen: the reporter and they were talking about gun violence in the inner city and paul ryan said bringing opportunity. >>> and you can do that with cutting taxes with a big tax cut. >> paul ryan said those are your word and not mine thampts kind of strange are you trying to stuff words in people's mouths. this was a local affiliate out of flint, michigan. an important state. >> brian: especially the polls are closing to within three. and it is interesting that paul ryan is out giving interviews and vice-president biden is in a six day -- c>> steve: no kidding. good for paul ryan stick to the press. the guy had something in mind. and it is the thing that newt gingrich did and was effective. maybe joe biden should be looking for that paul ryan. >> gretchen: the mitt romney declaring war on the president obama. >> how does romney's plan stack up.
